Mission Statement

Updated Sunday February 5, 2017 by Robert Elkins .

The Port Washington Police Activities League is a non-profit public benefit corporation whose mission is to build partnerships between youth, police, and the community through recreational, athletic, and educational programs designed to encourage and develop good citizenship and sportsmanship while improving the quality of life for all in the Port Washington area.


Port Washington PAL uses athletics along with recreational and educational activities as character building tools to instill positive values in our youth. We strive to satisfy our mission by providing our youth population with a safe spot away from the pressures of drugs, gangs, violence, and the rest of the gamut of youth pitfalls. We challenge our population to compete with themselves in order to grow more confident and be their best; whether that 'best' is on the ball field or in the classroom. We connect to the community by asking our population to 'give back' by volunteering in community based projects and by working with other community-based programs for youth to achieve our common missions.
